day five took us to camp 3 along the pangani river. day five also was the start of almost everyone in camp getting sick -- fever, chills and diarrhea. i think there were only three who didn't get the bug. thankfully i was one of the three. it blew my mind how diligent the riders were -- not a single person got into the truck when sick. one of the villages we stopped at for a break.
another village break point.
they were making chapatis out of this hut and served us a banana wrapped in a chapati -- so yummy!
flat tire repair, which happened many times each day.
gretchen and mike posing on a termite mound during our lunch break.
at this point, the cars had to separate from the riders. i was told that i could walk to the campsite faster than the cars could get there. since i had done so much sitting in the car over the prior four days, i was excited to walk for a bit. little did i realize...the walk would be SIX long and hot miles.
this was after the first three miles, at which point i had a blister on my heel the size of a quarter.
ake crossing another not-so-steady bridge.
most others decided it would be best to walk across.
these two (brother and sister) walked with ake and i the last three miles. they were walking home from school and still had farther to walk, after we arrived at our campsite.
and finally back at camp! kaitlin led a session of yoga, for anyone that wanted to join her.
